It's all too rare that I go and visit the kitchens that I've designed. I really must try and get round to see a few more. The trouble is, they're often spread out over quite a wide area of the country, and visiting would hold up the current plans in progress.
Yesterday was an exception, though ... and many thanks to Andy and April for their hospitality. I'm glad to say they seemed very pleased with the end result. I thought it looked good too.
Virtually every kitchen supplier in the country uses the word “shaker” to describe one or more of their kitchen ranges. But what does it mean exactly? Most of us will have heard of Shaker style but where did the term come from, and has it retained the original meaning, in terms of kitchen units? I don’t think it has ... but a kitchen which includes some Shaker styling is certainly worth considering.
Who Were the Shakers?
